Wolf Creek Falls is a wonderful roadside staircase waterfall located in Mercer County along US-19 just north of Spanishburg about halfway between Camp Creek and Princeton. The waterfall is located on Wolf Creek, which is a tributary of the Bluestone River and the drop is between 20 and 25 feet.

This waterfall can diminish in size in the summertime during times of dry weather, but when the rain falls, it is a beauty to behold.

Wolf Creek Falls can be found by taking Exit 20 (Camp Creek) of I-77 in Mercer County. Once off the exit, drive 3.6 miles south on US-19. It will be located right after you pass Wolf Creek Road on the left, and the waterfall will be below a bridge.

Wolf Creek Falls Location

Wolf Creek Falls can be seen from the roadway, but it’s not a great view. To get a better view, there is a small pullover spot available for vehicles. Head out and carefully make your way down to the creek bank below the bridge. Be cautioned that this is a STEEP bank. It can be done without a rope, but I would suggest one, especially if it has been raining. Once down to creek level, the walking is easy and there are plenty of spots to get some nice perspectives!
